Having a Granddad who is an architect carries certain benefits. You get expert help in building towers and bridges with the blocks Santa left under your tree.

If you are are especially lucky, Granddad also helps build a candy house modeled after your real house, and lets you put the lifesaver-shingles on the roof.

If, by chance, you are lucky enough to also have a great-aunt and great-uncle who live in Maine, you get gifts like a giant chocolate moose, and a book about lobsters, and a pink fleece jacket that fits perfectly.

If you are still a little new at reading, and not terribly familiar with marine animals, you might open the book about lobsters and say, “One day, there was a crab!” Everyone will think you are cute, so it won’t matter too much.
